Soul Mate Love

One question I get asked often when a client comes to me for guidance in finding a romantic partner is “ am I aiming too high”? Is it really possible for me to find a soul mate or is that something only found in fairy tales.

How does one go about finding a soul mate?

Miscommunication: when what they hear isn't what you said

“I know you believe you understand what you think I said. I'm not sure you realize what you heard is not what I meant.”- Robert McCloskey It has happened to all of us. We say something, and it is misconstrued or taken out of context and, suddenly, the person hearing it becomes incensed. They respond without thinking about it, and you are left with drama or a big problem. It happens at work, school and home. It happens in our marriages and relationships almost every day.

How To Find More Time For Your Relationships

We all work hard on our careers, helping our friends and family, and doing all those necessary chores. Women, particularly, are very generous with giving of themselves to others, sometimes to the detriment of their own needs and desires. But we're all guilty of getting caught in routines that don't leave enough time or energy for the ones we love. We recently asked the YourTango Experts how we can find space in our busy lives for more quality time seeking love or spending time with our current relationships. Here's what they had to say:

Five Reasons To Play Hooky From Work With Your Honey

You’re sitting at your computer at work and you’ve had it up to “here” with the pile of papers sitting on your desk. All you can think about is an afternoon escape. After all, the work will still be there when you get back. If you’re contemplating calling in sick or checking out early, double up with your partner so that you can really enjoy the day. A vacation for two is much more fun than one. Here are five ready-made reasons to hop the cubicle walls and make time for yourself and your loved one:

The Way To Relating: Sadness Versus Chronic Depression

Let’s take a look at the emotions and relating. This will be a five part article series with each article taking a deeper examination into each of the primary emotions and their fixed counterparts. Enjoy! In my recent article on communication I assert that the problem is not with communicating but rather with relating. There are five core emotions I am most interested in: Grief/sadness, fear, anger, love, and envy.

Too Much Cleavage? Try A Cleava

It's always been a dream of mine to have a small piece of fabric, conspicuously shaped like a thong, to snap on to my bra in the rare occasion that my cleavage just isn't cutting it. Since there are plenty of everyday situations where a bodacious rack peaking through the v-neck of a cute top isn't appropriate—work, church and meeting the boyfriend's parents—the Cleava was designed to help women go from corporate to casual in no time, without the painstaking task of putting on a pesky camisole.

Study: A Long Commute Can Ruin Your Marriage

New research from Sweden claims that a long commute hikes up your risk of divorce. According to the study, 11 percent of Swedes embark on a daily commute that is 45 minutes or longer. While 45 minutes doesn't seem like a lot (especially for New Yorkers accustomed to driving between Long Island and Manhattan twice a day) long commutes are a fairly new addition to the Swedish lifestyle. Alas, it looks like married couples are having a hard time dealing with the change, which ironically creates marital tension by reinforcing traditional (read: outdated) gender stereotypes.

Why I Want To Work On Mother's Day

The world outside shifts quickly when you're at home. It starts to feel too big; there's too much you need to protect your children from in it. But the truth is that the world outside isn't too big; it’s that when you let a part of yourself go—like your career—your world becomes smaller. And without balance, you lose perspective, a sense of proportion.

As A Stay-At-Home Mom, Do I Have A Say In Our Finances?

As a self proclaimed feminist, I was surprised by how hobbled I was by my love for our first born, that I, who’d argued for years how important it was that women remain in the workforce after giving birth, couldn’t imagine being anywhere but home. I'd always prided myself on being independent and self sufficient, secure on my own two feet. Now, without a paycheck, I felt lost, unsure of my worth.
